Happy New Year! I've decided to go a different route with resolutions for 2017. I find that when I set an intention that is a dramatic change based on restriction, e.g. I will cut out all diet sodas, I tend to obsess about said limits and inevitably fail. If I set a more positive intention with a more lenient boundaries, e.g. I will drink more water, than I tend to not only stay motivated, but feel much better during the process.
So this year's blueprint is all about making positive additions to your life this year. And to keep things even simpler, it's about choosing one specific thing to add in different areas of life. You can do any or of all of this list. The point is simply to focus on simple, gradual improvements.
I'm choosing the word FOCUS as my word of intention for 2017. It's about trying to focus my mind, simplify my goals, and not procrastinate. A few years back, I have to be honest, I thought the whole word of the year thing was a bit pointless. I thought I'd set it and forget it. But I actually found it very helpful this past year to have am overarching intention that I could keep in my mind as a regular reminder of my goals. My word last year, "NOW," helped to propel action, and I'm hoping "FOCUS" this year will help me to reign that action in and move towards more specific goals.
As for the rest of the list, I'll leave that a mystery. But if you'd like to implement this into your day-to-day, you can use the link above to print your own 8.5x11" version.
